Game Pass is a go for Manor Lords

  • Manor Lords is coming to Game Pass as a day-one release on April 26
  • However, this is just for PC players
  • There is currently a £1 trial available, meaning you could play the game for as little as that, plus get access to loads more titles

Manor Lords is coming to Game Pass as a day one release, the Xbox News Wire has confirmed. Sadly, this will just be early access for those with PCs, and the game will not be playable on Xbox.

When the Manor Lords release date rolls around, the game will go live on Game Pass for you to enjoy. Now for some even better news; if you want to give Slavic Magic’s highly anticipated title a go, you won’t need to break the bank to do so. At the time of writing, Microsoft is offering a Game Pass trial for £1, which we have captured below.

That plan means you’ll get EA Play, which gives you access to a huge catalogue of titles and trials of select games for up to 10 hours.​ The current offer will give you 14 days’ worth of gaming, so the key will be to kick this off as close to the Manor Lords early access release as possible to get the most bang for your buck. As per any service, you’re then able to cancel any time in that window, or else you’ll be automatically enrolled on to the full-priced plan.

Now, a word of warning. Just before Starfield came out, Microsoft pulled the $1 trial from the store. While we don’t know anything for certain, given the anticipation of Manor Lords, we don’t think it’s unlikely the same could happen again. Either way, we’ll be keeping a close eye and report back if we notice any changes. For the time, though, the offer is still available.

Manor Lords is arriving on April 26 and will be a Steam Early Access game – just like Palworld and Baldur’s Gate 3 – meaning it’s still actively in development but is playable. More content will be added to the game as time goes on until the developers reach version 1.0, which will be the full release. It’s been in development for around seven years, and has amassed around 2,00,000 wishlists on Steam – so it’s safe to say it could be one of the year’s biggest games.
